Not about Neil
Devil Diamond is one heck of a curio of a movie, that leaves everything dangling and nothing resolved. After a cursed diamond is shipped off by a jewelry company to get cut by a master cutter, a cunning employee of the company gathers a bunch of bad guys together to snap up the diamonds once theyre cut. Bur wait a sec, how are they going to act natural at the hostel where the cutter is? Thanks to a sharp-fisted delivery boy, they create a front that theyre training the kid to box, and that will keep everyone fooled! When they get there, theres another suspicious chap who is also looking at the diamond. Is it another bad guy? Were led to BELIEVE that, but of course it isnt, because after all, we need a hero for the story! So yes, it DOES turn out (DUH!) hes only keeping an eye out on the diamond, and starts getting suspicious about the gang hanging out. The boxer-in-training gets suspicious too, not when hes tiredly fighting off some girly amour that keeps pawing him.
The end I wont spoil for you, but this left me with my shoulders shrugging, as it really didnt achieve anything. Didnt leave me rooting for the main characters, nuttin.
